South Kent Wind Farm Project :
Location: Chatham, Ontario
Client: RES Americas Inc.
Wind Generation Capacity: 270MW
Transmission Line Voltage: 230kV
Transmission Line Length: 35km
Structure Type: Tubular steel tower
- Right-Of-Way Clearing
- Construction of Transmission Line
- Right-Of-Way Restoration
Foundations: Design calls for either direct embedment of steel pole, or a 30’ deep, steel reinforced foundation.
401 Crossing: PowerTel built transition structures on either side of Highway 401, to facilitate the high voltage underground cable installed to cross the highway.
Infrastructure Crossing: The project contains multiple major road, rail, and powerline crossings.
Right-of-Way: Line is built along an old railroad right-of-way. This reduces the impact of the line on nearby private property and the environment.
